Crisis Support

In times of crisis and emergency, Life for Koori Kids supports families via:

  • contact with key volunteers who respond to situations, sometimes personally visiting homes or hospitals late at night,
  • assistance with attaining and setting up priority housing for families or placement in refuges for late teens,
  • attendance at funerals,
  • visits to community members in youth detention centres, refuges and prisons,
  • pro-bono legal support for court hearings,
  • hospital visits,
  • contact for families with domestic difficulties, and
  • financial assistance to reconnect essential services.
